both - it's a place to discuss the physical weather & to make the virtual weather.

when i'm doing online workshops or link-ups, the weather always comes up early on, people want to know what it's like where the others are. maybe it's just small-talk, maybe it's a way of mentally connecting & building a picture of the person you're chatting to, maybe it's an anchor so that we don't lose ourselves in cyberspace. there's probably someone doing a phd on the topic somewhere ...
